Ok, real talk.
How do you feel about your core?
I’m asking because I know that this is an area of your body you might love to hate.
You might feel totally disconnected from your core muscles. Maybe you feel like you can’t rely on them at all.
You hear the phrase “core work”in your yoga class and you internally groan at the thought of suffering through another, boring class full of sit-ups and boat pose. Maybe you are just tired of trying to
I want to help you change that.
I want to teach you how to love your core by actually enjoying the exercises that make you feel stronger, more connected to, and proud of your core.
It’s easier than you think and I can teach you how.
You are in the right place if:
✔ You feel disconnected from your core muscles
✔ You have consistent, nagging low back pain
✔ Your body never really healed or felt strong again postpartum
✔ You don’t really know how to engage your core muscles
✔ You don’t feel as awesome in your body as you want to
✔ You’re bored with planks and sit-ups and want something more for your core
If you are consistent with these videos and practices, in 5 weeks you will feel:
✔ More strength, stability, and support in your core muscles.
✔ Reduced pain in your low back.
✔ More confidence on your yoga mat.
✔ Stronger everyday movements (like picking up your kids or groceries with greater ease or walking up a steep hill or flight of stairs).
✔ Better posture.
✔ Better balance and body stability.
✔ Healthier and more confident in your body.
✔ A re-energized commitment to your yoga practice!
I did Week 1: Balance Core today and it revolutionized Warrior 3 for me. I’ve always had a hard time for it, and engaging the core in this way you instructed made it easier, more interesting, and more enjoyable for me. Whoa!

Why does having a strong, healthy core matter?
(Hint: it’s not because everyone should have a “perfect” beach bod…)
Having a strong, healthy core matters because when you feel stronger in your center, you will feel more deeply connected to yourself, which naturally generates increased self-confidence regardless of size or shape.
An embodied self-confidence allows you to stand more fully in your truth, to stand up for the things you believe in, and empowers you to make an impact in the world.
I know that sounds intense but hey, connecting to your core is powerful stuff. Because when you feel amazing in your body, you ARE powerful.

This is such a great program. Exactly what I needed. Very doable to commit to 10-12 minutes a day. Exercises are varied which makes them fun. Thanks so much for putting this together.

AND HERE’S THE THING:
I know how busy you are. You want to be able to create change in your body but you don’t have a lot of time.
I get it. I’m a mom of 3.
I created these practices to be quick and efficient.
All of these videos are less than 15-minutes long.
You don’t need loads of time or special yoga props or fancy yoga pants (although those can be fun).
All you need is to commit to yourself for a few minutes everyday on your mat.
Easy peasy hamstrings squeezey.
How this works
I created 6 categories of core work: supine, standing, balancing, seated, forearm, and twists.
These cover the basics of core strength, stability, and mobility, while avoiding weight bearing on your hands and sit-ups of any kind.
Each week you’ll work on these 6 categories, one day and one practice at a time.
Over the course of the program, these practices increase in challenge.
You will do a brief warm up and cool down, but the majority of the time spent during these practices is focused on your core.
AND ONE MORE THING:
While I encourage you to move your body daily, which is why I’ve created this as a 5-week, daily practice program, I also understand that sometimes that just might not be possible. I will give you a weekly focus and daily tips helping you to integrate these practices into your everyday routines. And also, if you need a break, missing a day and a practice, it’s no big deal. There’s another one coming at you the following day. The idea is to have access to practices easily, in your inbox and at your fingertips, when you are ready for them.
Apropos of nothing, I’m obsessed with this core program. Best money I’ve ever spent. I love every single workout. (Except maybe the forearm day, if I’m honest because they are so HARD!)

Stay Calm, Cool, and Centered
My husband recently got diagnosed with arthritis in his hip. When he went to the orthopedist among other things he wants him to work on his core. I had just signed up for the core program when I found this out. He has been doing some of them with me so some days I do it twice. Also he went to PT yesterday and the PT was very glad to hear he was doing yoga. He is not a Yogi by any stretch of the imagination so this is really pushing him out of his comfort zone. Thank you for making these amazing videos that can get both of us moving.

Sounds too good to be true?
Don’t just take it from me.
Read a little bit about what my students have to say.
These are a few peeps who’ve taken my classes and have had some powerful, positive experiences.
“I recommend Naomi’s yoga classes to everyone! She is an amazing yoga instructor and has really inspired me to commit to yoga every day. My body feels so much better since I started doing yoga with Naomi!”
“After just one of Naomi’s online yoga classes, a pain pattern I’ve had for the better part of a year unravelled. Grateful doesn’t even begin to describe it.”
“I love the flow of Naomi’s classes and how the earlier movement builds up to a pose or a goal. Adding your classes into my routine did wonders for some of my back and neck issues. Plus they are really fun.”
